MOSCOW, September 15 (Itar-Tass) —An alternative congress of the Right Cause party, organized by head of the party federal executive committee Andrei Dunayev and former leader of the Democratic party Andrei Bogdanov, has sacked Mikhail Prokhorov from the head post in the party.
Besides, delegates to the alternative congress have voted to repeal a previous resolution, adopted by Prokhorov on Wednesday, on the expulsion of Bogdanov and the two Ryavkin brothers- Sergei and Alexander, from the party.
At the initial congress of the Right Cause party being held in the building of the Academy of Sciences Mikhail Prokhorov called upon his fellow party members to quit the Right Cause and create their own party.
Yevgeny Roizman, head of the City without Drugs Fund, who had been included into the Right Cause election list, which is believed one of the causes of a split within the party, declared that both Prokhorov and himself had already given a notice that they are quitting the Right Cause.
